Subject: Still holds up!
A very funny spoof on the problems of an industrial script writer. Highly entertaining
for anyone who sees "What Are We Trying To Do?"

Another amusing Calvin picture, dealing with a poor film executive dealing with business executives about what kind of film they want to make. I liked how everyone in the business was a yes man to everyone else. The business people were always sucking up to the person higher in power, "That's what I was thinking!" making the film exec even more confused. Many EB voices also are shown to have faces in this film as well.

For the very few of us who messed with industrial film in the 1960s, for the shorter list of those who used Calvin Productions' lab services, this is a straight line trip back to much younger days.
I never knew of these films then - that Calvin could laugh at itself is not really unexpected, even given the times where you just didn't spoof your own company.

Although I would think that binge drinking once a month (to the point of passing out at the bar) IS the behavior of a "lush," I realize that times change. Fun spoof of the travails of commercial film production. Good spoof of client behavior too--I'm going to keep this one handy. I give it 3 widgets.
